Nar-Anon now held at Aroostook Recovery Center of Hope

Aroostook Recovery Center of Hope (ARCH) will now hold Nar-Anon meetings on Mondays at 7:00 p.m. Opened in 2019, ARCH is located at 36 North Street in Houlton. It is a place where individuals can come and receive support for their recovery journey, connecting people to resources and also serve as a venue for various recovery meetings.

“Nar-Anon is a 12-step support meeting for those affected by a loved one’s addiction,” explained Eugene McLaughlin III, Peer Support Specialist, and Volunteer Coordinator. “It is estimated that for each addicted person, 10 others are affected including spouses, children, parents, siblings, and co-workers. This is a safe space for people to give and receive support from those who understand.”

ARCH is a service of Aroostook Mental Health Services, Inc. (AMHC) in collaboration with Link for Hope. For more information on the activities or resources offered at ARCH, please contact Eugene McLaughlin at 254-2213.
